Weezer Returns to Road For Theater Tour

America’s rockinest rock geeks are ready to return to the road on a tour that’ll take them worldwide.

Rumors of a Pixies/Weezer summer tour have been axed due to scheduling conflicts. But Weezer is about to return to touring – something they haven’t done since 2002.

With the band’s fifth album, Make Believe, set for a May 10 release, they’ll begin a worldwide tour at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom April 26.

The theatre tour will take Weezer down the West Coast, stopping in Seattle, San Francisco and Indio, Calif., where they’ll play the humongous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival April 30 where they’re right up there with Coldplay and Bauhaus on the list of headliners.

Other tour stops include Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia, New York (two nights) and Atlanta.

The group currently has North American dates booked through May 14.

Once the Rivers Cuomo & Co. are finished conquering the U.S. and Canada, they’ll head to Europe for concerts in Germany, France and Austria. Then it’s off to the U.K. where the band will play two back-to-back gigs at London’s Brixton Academy June 14-15.

In August, Weezer will head to Japan for the Summer Sonic festival.
